Yep, I’ve been a blogging slacker. It’s been the last thing on my mind, to tell you the truth. The Foodie Family is going through some really heavy stuff (and no, I’m not pregnant… HA). But some pretty serious life changing, emotionally, mentally and physically draining stuff. And it’s piling up on me. There has been garbage food consumed. Pizza and chips anyone? I feel disgusting. And for meals, I’ve been cooking to live, instead of for fun. Out of habit, I did take a few photos. I’m too exhausted to type out some witty commentary or walk you through the recipes step by step, but here are some photos of what I’ve cooked in the past week and a bit.
Sunday morning I procrasticooked. I made:
Green chicken marinade (it’s hanging out in the fridge to be roasted tomorrow) from Nom Nom Paleo
Super porktastic meatloaf from the Nom Nom paleo ipad app. This was awesome. I got distracted by the phone while I was broiling the bacon on top so the edges got burnt. Grr. I used my mini loaf pan for these. I’ll post the full recipe later. I made lots of improvisations.
Bacon and roasted garlic aioli! OMG GOOD. I used my mayo recipe and added in some crispy bacon bits and a drizzle of bacon grease.
Also added in some roasted garlic that I made for the velvety butternut squash (which I actually used sweet potatoes for this time.. and forgot to take a pic!)
Homemade cherry pie Larabars!
Coriander and mint chutney. I wasn’t thinking and put some oil in it, the consistency is off, but the taste is good.
I also made some hard boiled eggs but they were quite honestly the ugliest boiled eggs I’ve seen in a long time. Not picture worthy. And my handy dandy little boiled egg timer doo dad that sits in the pot broke. Come ON! Not my day!
Last week, a few things I made were:
Spicy Tuna Cakes from Nom Nom Paleo (recipe is in the ipad app, buy it!)
Pulled pork in the crockpot. No after pics, because Mr. Foodie and I tasted it and gobbled it up all that same day for every meal. Ha! Man, this was good. Too good. Probably because I used a ridiculously expensive whey fed locally raised pork shoulder. Not in the budget anymore, sadly! Meh.
Roasted potatoes. I just used oil and ranch seasoning
Some pretty beets. They looked less pretty after they were roasted, but so pretty while raw!
That’s all I’ve got. Please don’t stop reading my blog because I’ve been slacking lately! If only this paid the bills and was eligible for credit in my master’s program, we’d be in good shape!
